now that has pretty much come to an end, for me still a lot needs resolution, for the grace of god I did not know anyone directly who died in this horrific fire, although I know some of the families effected. What has always amazed me about this tragedy is there is a fire station about 200 yards away from this night club... guess it was pretty intense. Some of the victim impact statements indicated that the exits were locked and the bouncers would not allow people to escape this way, wtf. There was also the foam issue and plexiglass on some of the windows, talk about a toxic ****tail Spent some time watching the victim impact statements on the Court Channel and they politicized it more than the regular news feeds, which was less sanitized... I don't know what the outcome should have been, don't know how to adminster justice on these guys, have no idea how to make this right.. but I think their sentences are way too lenient and the families have a right to their anger. OTOH I have worked with Frank Darrigan, the judge, a long time ago and he is a man of great character, principal and a very good attorney. I think the families wanted a trial, so the argument about sparing them from reliving it sucked...I do agree it would have been next to impossible to seat an impartial jury in this state. So I am torn between the judge and some type of justice the family deserved... there is no money as the Derderians are now bankrupt. The litigation with the insurance company will drag on. My major issue right now is that Dan Biechle, the tour manager, is on work release and Michael Derderian will be on the same status soon.... think they could have both benefited from being behind high walls for while and some cool steel on their wrists.. while Jeff Derderian is doing community service. If they were given work release should have been on a burn ward somewhere, and should have been longer, to me it looks like a slap on the wrist, would not be surprised is a very angry relative pulls a gun on one or all three of them soon.. Know I am rambling, but reflects my mind about this horrific event in our lives.
